Glorious Universe

Click on the link below to view an amazing slide show of photographs of our incredible solar system, galaxy and the Universe. It is a compilation of entries from around the world for "The Royal Observatory Greenwich's Astronomy Photographer of the Year" competition. These photographs are awe-inspiring.

The skies now are vividly beautiful with these cool, crisp Autumn nights. It is humbling, but also inspirational to gaze at this wonderful natural beauty. And also, very spiritually enhancing.

Take time to observe and to know that we are also part of this awesome Universe. Perhaps that sounds somewhat naive in the face of much horror, war and the despicable deeds that humans perpetrate on each other. But I believe there is much goodness, too in this world of ours; I am counting on the combined positive energies of all the good on this planet to keep it spinning. This is a driving force of my Wiccan Path. Honor the Universe, honor ourselves.

I too believe that there are a lot of good people in this world, Robin, and through their positive acts and thoughts we will rise above the bad. Some days it's hard to believe that, but I do. I hope you are doing well! Ann

Fantastic photographs! There's a bit too much light from the earth here to get those spectacular photographs but it's much better than in the big city :-)

I was planning on going outside last night to look at the stars but it was just way too cold :-)

Have a great day!

Gorgeous Photography!

I truly believe in the goodness as well, and lately I have been focusing on honoring it more every day..because sadly, sometimes I let the negative energies get to me...but No More! I'm using the driving force I have to accept the Positive Energies around me and choosing to see the greatness that this universe and it's people have to offer.

Mind boggling! It makes you think. On many many levels. Where do we fit in. We are so insignificant. It hurts my head!
Thanks for introducing this wonderful post.
